Easy Storage Ideas to De-Clutter Your Home

A key element in staging a home for sale is to make it look clean, spacious, and presentable.

Learn how to clear the clutter with these quick and easy storage solutions that keep your home looking its best and make moving day a breeze at the same time.

Storage Bench or Seat: Buy an attractive storage bench or seat to store toys, pet items, and garden tools in a great looking container that adds a decorative element to the space. Outdoor PVC garden benches are an easy alternative to keep a patio or porch tidy, while a toy box in each bedroom makes quick work of preparing bedrooms to be shown on short notice. Best of all, storage benches make light work of packing when moving day arrives.

Bright Boxes: Purchase bright coloured storage boxes to use on shelves or inside cabinets to reduce the appearance of clutter.

Overhead Storage Systems: Add inexpensive overhead storage systems to the garage, shed, or even bedrooms. Sturdy and easy-to- install ceiling mounted storage systems keep walkways free of debris, especially in cluttered spaces like the garage. Add colourful ribbons or bright decorations to create the perfect place for stuffed animals, games, or other infrequently used toys in bedrooms.

Racks: From bikes to hats, there is a rack for every reason, so chances are your home could benefit from a few well positioned and inexpensive racks too. Some of the more popular racks include bike racks, multimedia racks, coat and hat rack, laundry racks and of course – spice racks. Remember, potential buyers are likely to search every inch of your home including closet space, cabinets, and storage sheds to determine if their own belongings will fit. Stay prepared by presenting your home in the best light possible by putting everything in its place.
